Kristie Pooley's new business — Broadway & Fourth Jewelers — is Eagle's newest retail operation and a “hidden gem” for the entire valley.“I would like to offer the community an affordable shopping option, with high quality jewels and gifts at ‘city prices,'” said Pooley. “The goal of Broadway & Fourth Jewelers is to bring life into historic downtown Eagle; while providing personal attention, respect and care when assisting our customers.”Her shop includes a wide array of 14 karat gold and sterling silver jewelry along with various handcrafted designs and a fun selection of accessories. The inventory at Broadway & Fourth Jewelers includes Kenneth Cole and BCBG watches, and Pooley will offer jewelry repair services.“I have a nice variety of sterling at very affordable prices along with fun and sassy fashion jewelry,” said Pooley. “The shop also features unique gifts, including kids items in our special kids corner.”Pooley has a long history in the jewelry business dating back to her high school years. She worked for a family-owned chain of jewelry stores in Ohio for many years, where she advanced from sales to store management to merchandising and diamond buying for the entire operation.After she left Ohio, she worked in outside sales for many years. She returned to the jewelry business five years ago.With all that experience, Pooley said her store reflects customers' different jewelry needs. Sometimes they need a flashy, fun piece and they don't want to spend a fortune. Other times they are in the market for a heirloom. And still other times, they need a special piece fixed so they can continue wearing it.“I can do repairs of all types, including watch batteries, link adjustments, soldering, restringing and many other services,” said Pooley. “I also will buy gold at the best rates.”Pooley will also design jewelry per customer request, many times while they wait. “Bridal parties are welcome,” she said.Like its name suggests, Broadway & Fourth Jewelers is located on the west side of Broadway at the intersection of Fourth Street. Shop hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The business website is www.broadway&fourthjewelers.com and the business can be reached at 328-7328.
